Air Conditioning SEER Rating, What Does It Mean?

Seer stands for seasonal energy efficiency ratio. It's the industry standard for rating the cooling efficiency of air-conditioning systems and heat pump systems. Much like miles per gallon for a car, it's an easy way to compare efficiencies of different products, the higher the seer, the more efficient the units.

Once an air-conditioning system is installed, the seer rating should be easy to locate, displayed on the bright yellow energy guide label. Since 1975, every home comfort product has been required by the federal government to display the energy guide label to help customers make informed decisions about energy conservation and it efficiency of home comfort product's.


Understanding the SEER Rating For Air Conditioners.

To make energy guide an accurate comparison tool, federal law requires all air-conditioning manufacturers to follow the same efficiency testing procedures. For air-conditioning systems  that tests must be run using " the most common coil" sold with the model as well as with a standard indoor heating unit. If a different coil or indoor heating unit is installed as part of your home comfort system the seer for your particular system could accurately be different than the published rating .

Air Conditioning And Heating Performance

Innovative air-conditioning and heating manufacturers  like Carrier now offer the technology to boost overall system performance  beyond  the published seer ratings of an individual air conditioning system or heat pumps. increased seer ratings that follow federal law testing and publishing requirements can that be obtained by your installing Dealer. While the energy guide label that arrives with your new air-conditioning system will remain the same, your system could accurately be more efficient .
